Biden deputy campaign manager after Trump immunity ruling: ‘I’m scared as s‑‑‑’

President Biden’s principal deputy campaign manager Quentin Fulks said Monday that he’s “scared as s‑‑‑” after the Supreme Court ruled that former President Trump has presumptive criminal immunity for official acts.

“I’m scared as s‑‑‑ and I think Americans are scared and should be scared of what Donald Trump will do, because he has been telling us for months,” Fulks said. “And so I can reassure you that when you do see President Biden out on the trail, he will be talking about the reasons why Americans should be scared of Donald Trump as he has been for months, and this Supreme Court opinion today just amplified that.”

In a major win for Trump, the high court ruled 6-3 that former presidents enjoy a presumption of criminal immunity for official acts while in the White House.

The move sent the federal case connected to his efforts to overturn the 2020 election back to a lower court to determine whether Trump’s actions meet the qualifications for immunity protection. It’s all but certain that case will not see a trial date until after the election. If Trump wins, he would be expected to end the prosecution.

Trump celebrated the decision as a victory while the Biden campaign responded that the former president thinks he’s above the law.
